  • When The Radar Lies

    Scott Dennstaedt
    30 Jul 2015 | 8:41 am
    The ground-based radar mosaic displayed on the Map view in ForeFlight Mobile combines radar data from the National Weather Service (NWS) and Environment Canada. Its primary purpose is to provide pilots with a good estimation of where precipitation is occurring and where it’s not. While there are some holes in the coverage (especially in Canada) the radar mosaic is fairly accurate most of the time. Even so, non-precipitation returns generically called ground clutter can be displayed on the radar layer producing what looks like very real areas of precipitation. Anomalous propagation, or…

Example: KMIA Deeep One RNAV SID contains MEAs/MOCAs.  KMIA Hedly One RNAV SID does not contain any MEAs/MOCAs. Thanks for the feedback. Below is another thought of which I am curious to hear feedback: Furthermore:—Hedly One for example Since DME/DME RNAV can be utilized, a pilot should want to know the MEA/MOCA so that one can determine optimal ground based navaid (VOR) reception along the entire SID route since radar vectors will only be utilized for a portion…

  • Podcast: New Hypoxia Training for TBM Owners

    25 Jul 2015 | 11:19 pm
    In tightly knit pilot communities, an accident often has profound effects on the group because most people in it know the accident pilot. That was definitely the case with the Larry Glazer TBM accident in 2014, in which the pilot became unresponsive, apparently due to hypoxia, and overflew his destination, crashing at sea near Jamaica. As a direct result of that accident, a Florida-based company, in cooperation with Daher, is developing a hypoxia training program specifically for TBM owners. According to Dr. Ian Blair Fries, who is working with Dr. Paul Buza on the project, the program may…

    Cockpit Conversation

  • "My Frequency" Confession

    19 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    When flying IFR, a pilot "reads back" that is repeats back all the instructions we receive from air traffic control, to demonstrate that we have heard and accept the instruction, and to give the controller a chance to notice if we have heard incorrectly, or if the controller misspoke. It gets a little silly sometimes: the pilot asks for a particular clearance, the controller clears them for it, and the pilot reads it back again, but it prevents us from descending to five thousand when it's only safe down to nine thousand. When I say pilots talk to "air traffic control," we are only sometimes…

Autumn must have been a passenger, as one must be seventeen to pilot an airplane like that in the United States. So her grandmother or grandfather was flying it. They were en route from Kalispell, Montana (at the southern end of the Rocky Mountain Trench) to Lynden, Washington (on the west coast, just south of the Canadian border). This route crosses mountains, some of the most rugged and remote territory in the contiguous United States. The aircraft is…
  • Stowaway Cat

    Here is one of the many reasons why there is not an exhaustive list of things to check on preflight inspection. You just walk around that airplane and poke bits of it until you're satisfied that it is airworthy. You'd think that would have included spotting a cat in a translucent wing, but apparently not. The cat seems less upset about the whole experience than the typical cat is about vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, or a change in cat food brand. I have unexpectedly found cats in or on an aircraft on three occasions, but two were in the hangar and one was a cat in a cage that was part of…
  • Is The Best Part Taking Off?

    A friend wrote today to congratulate me and my countrymen on the 106th anniversary of powered flight in Canada, and then he followed up to ask "is the best part taking off? I always imagine that the best part must always be taking off." And he's right. You get in and put on your seatbelt and make sure everyone's settled and nothing is in the way, just like heading out for a car trip if you have multiple children inside and pets possibly running around outside. (Don't forget to preflight your car by banging on the hood to evict cats or squirrels that might be snuggling up to your engine block…

    The multi-billion dollar tender for the 126 Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA), for which Rafale was shortlisted in 2012, has been withdrawn by the government, after New delhi committed to buy only 36 of the aircraft in April this year. India planned to buy 126 jet fighters for the replacement of its aging MiG-27, MiG-27 and Jaguar fighter jets. According to the plans, 108 of the aircraft would be produced in India and 18 to be imported. The procurement of 36 Rafales, to be built in France will meet only a small part of gap the Indian Air Force has in its fighter jet fleet

    Lots of flight diversions take place every week, due to minor reasons and major. Cathay Pacific flight 884, from Hong Kong to Los Angeles also diverted on July 29 this year, to the remote island of Shemya, in the north Pacific. While there was nothing extraordinary about the diversion, what caught attention was the video released by a passenger, detailing what went on inside the flight as it prepared to land. Even some frequent travellers may get goosebumps watching the video, where the passenger goes from confused about the situation, to nervous about potentially landing on water, to…

As I was walking out of the shop, I saw that the front door had a little inscription, “Inspired by Starbucks”. I was intrigued, as nowhere in the coffee shop did I see the usual “We proudly brew Starbucks” sign, and everything seemed very independent indeed.

    “When everyone is special, no one is” were the closing words for my recent article on TAM’s Ownboard initiative. It stayed with me as I increasingly mulled over why, when every other industry is focusing on making consumers feel special, the airline business struggles (or is unwilling) to do the same. As I started poring through data and research, the first instance of personalised airline marketing came way back in the 1960s when United Airlines ran a promotion called “Take Me Along”. It targeted businessmen to take their wives along with them on business trips — a…

    This post was originally published in the Airline Business Magazine, July 2015 issue. It is reproduced here with some modifications. Who would have thought that a video showing an airplane taking off could garner over ten million views on YouTube? But Boeing did just that, with a video showing the brand new Vietnam Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft taking off at a very steep angle. The video was filmed as the 787 test pilots practiced their moves ahead of the Paris Air Show 2015. While camera angles were well thought out, it was the timing of the video release that made it work. The…

    Do you remember the last time you read an in-flight magazine? No, flipping through it while the aircraft is taxing towards the runway or taking off, does not count. I certainly do not remember doing much more than that. In the age of tablets and smartphones, a connected traveler would barely take out time to go through a magazine that would often have generic and run-of-the-mill content. And that’s what bothered Brazilian carrier, TAM Airlines. They found less than 11% of their passengers remembered what they read on-board. Worse still, passengers spent less than 3% of their time…

Any advertising that you’ve done when you’re not clear about what benefit you’ve received from it (if any) would qualify. Here are some facts to compare: A quarter page ad in MRO Network magazine will cost you  $3,008, assuming you’re willing to commit to running it four times a year, for a total of $12,032. A standard 10 x 10 booth at the NBAA convention will run you $2,915. And that’s before you figure in the cost of little things like carpet, chairs, electricity, your display, travel costs,…

Are you a pilot? Or leader? Do you engage in business? Then you need to know too. Perhaps several terms combine to describe you like one of these roles: leader of a technical team; engineer designing a satellite; mathematician; university department head; student; test pilot; airline captain.

  • the leverage you need to move the world — observations #50

    Mark Jones Jr
    12 Jul 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Archimedes, an ancient Greek mathematician, purportedly said these words: Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the world. His based this idea on the notion of leverage, the mechanical advantage one gains when using a lever. A common example of this is the seesaw. The rudder of a ship or an aircraft is another example. When I look at the picture below, I imagine the tremendous force available to command and steer the aircraft–a pilot can displace the rudder with a small movement of his feet. This displacement of the rudder is so far from the aerodynamic center of the aircraft, that…

  • From the archives: Leighton Collins flies a 747 to Paris

    Air Facts Staff
    31 Jul 2015 | 2:54 pm
    Editor’s note: One of the most popular stories from the Air Facts archive is Leighton Collins’s spellbinding trip report from the cockpit of an early Boeing 707 on the way to Europe. This flight, in 1960, showed the promise of jet airliners and the skill of the men who flew them. In this article, we move 10 years into the future, as Collins again flies to Europe with TWA captain Bob Buck. This time they are in the larger and more advanced 747 – still one of the great achievements in aeronautical engineering. Ride along as they fly to Paris. Eleven years ago the 707’s…
  • Out of control on short final – a freight dog learns a lesson

    Dave Sandidge
    29 Jul 2015 | 3:12 pm
    The life of an on-demand cargo pilot could be described in differing ways, except in sacred locales, depending on your penchant for poverty – or a hand-to-mouth existence. Most sensible men of stature in the community, possessed of cunning business sense, would scoff at the very idea of spending their lives collecting nothing but additional hours of experience to docket in a logbook. The pay is dismally low (when it eventually comes), the hours on duty are ridiculously long and fatiguing, and the aircraft, more times than not, are beset with proclivities toward self-mutilation. They can be…
  • Smoke and flames report – is the GA safety picture changing?

    Richard Collins
    27 Jul 2015 | 12:05 pm
    I know that some readers don’t like for us to write about general aviation accidents and safety. That is too bad because the best flying lessons are found in accident reports where we learn about the all-important things that we should not do in airplanes. The number of hours flown is not going in the right direction. By my count there were 121 certified fixed-wing airplanes (excluding agricultural) in fatal accidents in the 48 contiguous states in 2013. There were 40 in experimental airplanes. Looking back at 2006, before the wheels came off most everything, there were more: 192 certified…

    David Bauer
    24 Jul 2015 | 5:26 am
    Back in the day, Apple Valley Airport was a nice destination for a rare CAVU flight on a warm summer day in Southern California. I would be riding as a passenger and copilot with a friend of mine in the Cal Tech Aero Club’s Cessna 172. I arrived early and decided to pre-flight the plane before my friend arrived. I finished what I considered my usual thorough inspection just as he showed up. Flaps down for preflight – but did they go back up? The mild Santa Ana winds, not having had a chance to build up in the cool morning air, made the flight out unusually smooth. The view outside the…

    Trip Farmer
    21 Jul 2015 | 8:35 pm
    The day started off just as any Saturday when I have a mission to fly. Get up early, get dressed, very little to eat or drink, and head to the Tuscaloosa Municipal Airport (TCL). It took a few minutes to wake up good. I don’t sleep well the night before a mission, kind of like kids do on Christmas Eve anticipating their packages, only my package was a patient (and what the day will be like). Today I was extra-excited to be flying Madeline (Mattie), age five as of last week, and her father, Chris, probably 30.

  • FuelBurn app monitors your fuel status

    Bret Koebbe

    We’re fortunate as iPad pilots that aviation apps can do just about everything but cook you dinner, though it’s nice to come across apps from time to time that specialize in one particular function and do it well. Our latest find in this category is the FuelBurn app, which is dedicated to fuel tracking and alerts. FuelBurn is designed primarily for the iPhone’s smaller screen, but like all iPhone-only apps it will also run just fine scaled up on your iPad. When you first open the app you’ll see a configuration screen, allowing you to enter the amount of usable…

    The iPad has become an integral part of flight training at many flight schools. In addition to allowing students to keep all their aviation training materials and electronic charts in one convenient location, it also serves as excellent post-flight debriefing tool. Apps like ForeFlight, WingX Pro and CloudAhoy make it incredibly easy for pilots to record all the parameters of their flight using the iPad and a GPS, and then replay the details of the flight when back on the ground.

  • Sikorsky sold to Lockheed Martin

    captain
    21 Jul 2015 | 12:51 am
    Sikorsky has just been sold to Lockheed Martin for the sum of $9 billion USD. With this huge step, Lockheed will be the largest supplier of the Pentagon. The transfer will be made at the end of this year or early 2016, seeing Lockheed expanding its territories. Currently, Lockheed produces the F-35 fighter jets, government satellites and naval ships. By buying Sikorsky, Lockheed will be a better competitor in the areas of rotary aircraft especially with the new S-97 Raider. The main focus of Lockheed will still be the same; that concerning defense and intelligence sectors. The post Sikorsky…

    On Saturday 27th June, at the Minnesota Air Spectacular, a teen apparently cranked up a Mayo Clinic helicopter. The H145 was cranked up, causing the rotor blades to turn. The 17-year old somehow managed to sneak in the cockpit of the unattended aircraft and managed to get to the controls. Two persons were injured by a nearby sun shade that fell over. Immediately the crew shutdown the aircraft and was removed from the display and is being inspected by technical crew. Mayo Clinic is conducting a review and reported the incident to the FAA.

    It all happened when a ditching occurred on 10th May in 2012 in the North Sea, some 30 miles off Aberdeen. According to the AAIB report, the helicopter operated by Bond Helicopters, had to ditch due to lubrication problems in the MGB (Main Rotor Gear Box) and a subsequent indication that the emergency lubrication system had also failed. The pilots and one of the passengers have filed a case against Airbus Helicopters due to this incident. After this incident, EASA flagged the airworthiness of such aircraft and as a consequence Airbus replaced the main transmission. This didn’t stop the…
